Davy Watson is a singer-songwriter-musician from Belfast. With influences steeped in Rhythm & Blues, Celtic Folk, Americana and Rock n Roll, his songs come from the Heart & Soul.

As a young bass player and singer Davy toured with Philip Lynott and opened for Bob Geldof and the Boomtown Rats at Leixlip Castle. He travelled the length and breadth of Ireland playing in such iconic venues as the Dandelion Market, the Pound Club, the Róisín Dubh and Cork Opera House. A move to Los Angeles saw him playing and recording with Jack Lancaster, Hazel O’Connor and Madonna. Davy formed ‘Trinity’ with Vivian Campbell and was produced by Shel Talmy (Who, Kinks). His song ‘Only Love’ was used in CBS’s prime time series ‘Live Shot’. Davy was also a featured artist on L.A.’s famous KLOS radio.

Returning home, Davy was awarded a MPhil Degree in Music and Media Technologies from Trinity College, Dublin and built on his success in America, touring and recording with Jack L, Henry McCullough and Gráinne Duffy, playing Glastonbury and other prestigious festivals and venues throughout Europe. He opened for Beth Hart at the Royal Albert Hall, on her European Tour and most recently in the USA.

In August 2018, Davy performed his music with the Ulster Orchestra to a sell-out crowd in the iconic Ulster Hall, Belfast. A DVD and CD of this concert was released the following year. 2024 will see Davy release new music with his band – DWB. 

Davy Watson is the shit!!! Soul, soul and more soul for our aching souls – Beth Hart

Armed with just an acoustic guitar, a beat box and a bluesy voice, the public will thus be conquered by a set showing restraint and emotion. Davy gave an irreproachable performance – Concerts en Boîte – Pasino, France 

Davy Watson is maybe a contender for the title of greatest unknown treasure in Northern Irish music – Gigging NI
